What was your most memorable quote or quotes from a bassist or musician that has inspired you ?
"Just because the bass has a traditional role to fulfill, that doesn't mean you have to fulfill it in the traditional manner." Jack Bruce
That gave me freedom and a solid grounding to combine what I love about fundamental players Luke Duck Dunn, Carl Radle, et. al. and others like Bruce, Cassidy, etc.
From a drummer of my acquaintance - Don't let what you want to make happen interfere with what is actually happening.
Guitarist, after gig: 'Here's your money'
Not that this one "inspired" me, but one of the most memorable bassist quotes for sure:
Yeah, that’s a variant on “A good friend will help you move, a great friend will help you move a dead body”. Dead men tell no tales.
